Managing Conflict with Peers and Mentors

l.jpg
Description
 
 
The University might look like a place free from conflict, politics, or anything like that, and that may really be true--most of the times. Think of a situation when your dissertation chair wants you to take direction A with your research while another member in the committee is not fond of that kind of idea, and you begin to feel that your work and motivation is affected by those conflicting intellectual interests of people who mean all good for you. Or think of a situation you are not satisfied with the quality of your research partner's work, or their professionalism. Difference of opinion and perspective, and even difference of work style, is part of any intellectual and professional community. Indeed, conflicts may be positive and productive in effect, or in the long run; but when you face it, you need to know how to handle. Effective management of conflict is part and parcel of your professional development, as a student and in the professional market.
